November 26, 2021 – Ottawa, Ontario – Treasury Board of Canada Secretariat

The Government is making clear its commitment to improving public health and welfare in Indigenous communities through key investments in services and infrastructure, as well as its contributions to the global effort to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Today, the Honourable Mona Fortier, President of the Treasury Board of Canada, tabled the Supplementary Estimates (B), 2021–22, in the House of Commons.

These Supplementary Estimates propose $8.7 billion in voted budgetary spending across 60 federal organizations. This amount includes spending of

$1.1 billion on housing, schools, child welfare programs, and water infrastructure in Indigenous communities, and $1.2 billion for the government’s continued efforts in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Supplementary Estimates also show, for information purposes, forecast budgetary statutory expenditures of $4.7 billion, primarily due to the extension of the Canada Recovery Benefit, and for forecasted requirements for the Canada Recovery Caregiving Benefit and the Canada Recovery Sickness Benefit.

The Estimates family of documents provides Canadians and parliamentarians with insight into how the Government plans to invest taxpayer money.


“These Estimates demonstrate our Government’s ongoing commitment to improving outcomes for Canadians, including those living in Indigenous communities, and to furthering our contribution to the global COVID-19 effort.”


The Honourable Mona Fortier, President of the Treasury Board
